I’ve just installed Conditional Profile Fields for BuddyPress. Unfortunately it’s not working in BuddyBoss 😯
All of the fields are showing up in the registration form. It doesn’t pay attention to the settings in the Conditional Profile Fields plugin. I am using the plugin on my Registration Form. In WordPress that can be found by going to: WP-Admin >> BuddyBoss >> Profiles >> Profile Fields >> Details (Sign Up) Tab
The fields are appearing, even if I select: Show > Current Field if > X
Please let me know what I can do to help.
Thank you for using the plugin.
The plugin is not supported for BuddyBoss by us.
Still, the plugin should normally work except for their repeater field.
Please check if you have condition on repeater field or something else is causing issue.
Thanks for getting back to me quickly.
The problem is half-fixed. It was that I hadn’t selected “Profile Type = Users with No Profile Type”. Because technically, these are new users, so the logic wasn’t applying to them in the profile registration page (before they had registered).
However, the problem still persists that when “Profile Type” is selected, it kills the conditional logic, and the fields stop showing conditionally. I’ve made a quick Loom video to define the exact problem: https://www.loom.com/share/8e8eec25dcb54c998bd6ea2c122ef21e
It seems like this is a bug rather than a problem with the settings, so hopefully this helps to resolve it.
That could be an issue.
The profile type limits the scope of fields and this plugin might not be understanding that. We can update it but this will take some time as we already have our schedule for this week and next week, we will be low on manpower due to Diwali(festival) here.
I will try to work on it early next month. Probably this will need a rewrite to help plugin understand member type based scopes. Sorry for the delay on this.
I almost forgot. Happy Diwali! I celebrated the festival in India in 2014. I spent 3-months in India on my 25th birthday. These were the best memories of my life! I spent Diwali in Udaipur, and then Dep Diwali in Varanasi. Catching overnight trains to Bundi and Pushkar in between! I absolutely loved the celebration in India, and I can’t wait to come back. Have a great time!
Don’t worry about the delay at all. Thanks very much for your support, and advising to re-code that part of the plugin logic. It will be great to have this working. Then, I’ll be able to let different Profile Types sign up with different field choices.
Just so I have a rough timeframe, do you think it will be roughly around early November? I’ll focus on other areas of my site, and put the registration process to the side, for now, until this is released. And I’ll test it for you once ready!
I’ll be recommending BuddyDev everywhere, and leaving lots of 5-star reviews. 🙂👍
It’s wonderful to know that you have been to India around Diwali. It’s one of the most amazing festival we have here.
I hope you enjoyed your stay here.
Yes, the plugin will be available in early November.
1. The issue with xprofile upload seems to be your wp-content/upload is not being writable/readable. It is thrown by WordPress when we ask it to handle the upload but the upload file is not readable.
Please check uploads directory and its permissions.
I will look out for it. Please let me know here when it’s ready 🙂
Also I’ve noticed that in the X Profile Field Types, we need the ability to select “0 years ago” in the Relative Range for the “Date” field. This is because if a student for example is adding their Graduation Date for 2022, then they will need to enter 2022. But because the minimum is “1 year ago”, we can only choose a date that’s in the past (such as 2021, 2020, etc.).
Otherwise, if we select the “Absolute” range, then we will have to go into every single profile field and update this on January 1st every year to include the latest year. It’s tedious, and dangerous to edit so many fields this often! I hope we can add the ability to include “this year” or “the current year” in the relative choices in a “date” field. 😁
This means that a job experience could be entered from 2022, for example. Or if someone graduated from university in 2022, they could add it, etc. etc.
Thanks very much! I hope it’s helpful feedback.
Enjoy your celebration and Happy Diwali! 🪔🎆🎇🇮🇳
Sorry for the delayed reply. I hope you had a great weekend! The fields I’m referring to are the “Date” fields, not the “Age” ones. Is this a standard BuddyPress field type? 😖
I need the “Date” field to be relative, because the nearest relative time in the past is “1 year ago”. Therefore, if somebody graduated in 2022, then they wouldn’t be able to choose this date. The earliest they could select would be October 26th 2021 (1-year ago).
Does that make sense? I hope it’s clear.
